James Malloy
R808 Discovery Miles 8 080 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Brazil has one of the most elaborate social security systems in Latin America.

Authoritarianism and Corporatism in Latin America (Paperback): James Malloy Authoritarianism and Corporatism in Latin America (Paperback)
James Malloy
R1,076 Discovery Miles 10 760 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Since the mid-1960s it has been apparent that authoritarian regimes are not necessarily doomed to extinction as societies modernize and develop, but are potentially viable (if unpleasant) modes of organizing a society's developmental efforts. This realization has spurred new interest among social scientists in the phenomenon of authoritarianism and one of its variants, corporatism.
The sixteen previously unpublished essays in this volume provide a focus for the discussion of authoritarianism and corporatism by clarifying various concepts, and by pointing to directions for future research utilizing them. The book is organized in four parts: a theoretical introduction; discussions of authoritarianism, corporatism, and the state; comparative and case studies; and conclusions and implications. The essays discuss authoritarianism and corporatism in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

Bolivia - The Uncompleted Revolution (Paperback): James Malloy Bolivia - The Uncompleted Revolution (Paperback)
James Malloy
R889 Discovery Miles 8 890 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The first book-length analysis of the Bolivian revolution by an American political scientist explains the events of 1952 as a Latin American case study, and links the theme of the revolution with other contemporary insurrections in underdeveloped countries. Combining narrative excitement and scholarly analysis, the book pinpoints sources of weakness and stress in the Bolivian old order, with particular attention to the effects of uneven economic developments in the first two decades of the twentieth century. It then focuses on the stormy years after 1936 that led up to the insurrection of April 9-11, 1952. Finally, it examines attempts of the revolutionary government to promote economic development between 1952 and November 1964, when it was overthrown.

Unsettling Statecraft - Democracy and Neoliberalism in the Central Andes (Paperback): James Malloy Unsettling Statecraft - Democracy and Neoliberalism in the Central Andes (Paperback)
James Malloy
R889 Discovery Miles 8 890 Out of stock

Latin America in the 1980s was marked by the transition to democracy and a turn toward economic orthodoxy. Unsettling Statecraft analyzes this transition in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Peru, focusing on the political dynamics underlying change and the many disturbing tendencies at work as these countries shed military authoritarianism for civilian rule.
Conaghan and Malloy draw on insights from the political economy literature, viewing policy making as a "historically conditioned" process, and they conclude that the disturbing tendencies their research reveals are not due to regional pathology but are part of the more general experience of postmodern democracy.
